What motors can you use with microforce v+f

Can you only use digital motors with this?
I may be mistaken but I think there was a horizontal motor that you could use?

The V+F is used with analog motors only. The digital microforce uses the digital motors. both can talk to the HU (though certain original V+F are set up for "film only" work and can't communicate with video lenses or the HU)
The horizontal motor you are thinking of is the Heden: http://www.abelcine....den-M26T-Motor/
You can also get cables to use directly with lenses that have built in zoom motors (like the Fujinon and Canon 2/3" lenses)

The analog motors are either position-sensing (denoted by a "P" in the name for Heden motors) or speed/direction sensing (denoted by a "T")
The mircoforce works off of the latter of the two types, getting information back from the tachometer in the motor to determine how fast and in what direction the motor is turning.
